James(UK)

Welcome to Chit Chat Cafe! I’m James.
I was born in the UK and moved to Sapporo in 2004. My hobbies include reading, escaping to the countryside to enjoy nature, playing the guitar, cooking, singing and watching movies.
Chit Chat Cafe is a place where you can practice your English and meet new and interesting people from all walks of life.
We are here to make sure you receive a warm welcome and to give you an opportunity to use the English that you have learnt in a natural environment.
Looking forward to hear your stories!

Bartek(Poland)

Howdy! I’m Bartek from Warsaw.
I moved to Japan in 2015 and after a year at Osaka University I moved to Sapporo to start my studies at Hokudai.
Among my hobbies are travel and communicating with people of different cultures and backgrounds. Each conversation teaches me something new and gives me the opportunity to become a better person. I developed a mean habit of asking people challenging questions to always push them one step further 🙂 
So, are you ready to explore the world of English conversation? Are you ready for the challenge? If the answer is yes, then let’s meet at Chit Chat Cafe!
you an opportunity to use the English that you have learnt in a natural environment.
Looking forward to hear your stories!

Rocky(Australia)

G’Day everyone!
Lachlan (Rocky) here!
I’m from a small coastal city called Newcastle. It’s hot and dry but luckily it’s right on the beach!
I came to Japan last September; just in time for the earthquake and typhoons (maybe I’m bad luck). I’ve traveled around Japan a few times but finally decided to make Sapporo my home.
I enjoy photography and cinematography; you may even see me out shooting around the city. I also enjoy music; currently I’m relearning to play guitar.
I always enjoy learning about new things and meeting new people. Looking forward to chatting with you!

Chris(UK)

Hey! I’m Chris from Bristol. I’ve lived in Japan since September 2018. I studied photography in University and have a strong interest in languages, science and cars. I also love dogs!
So, why Japan? Firstly, I wanted to try living abroad. Secondly, Japan is my favourite country to visit. I chose Sapporo because I prefer cold places, and decided that northern Japan would be perfect.
When I’m not working, I’m taking photos, hiking, cycling and drinking too much coffee. I’m doing a photography project in rural Japan, so talk to me about Japanese scenery anytime. Looking forward to meeting you!

Peter(Canada)

Hi there! My name is Peter Anderson. I’m 31 years old . I’m from Canada. I like 囲碁 and muscle training. My favourite Japanese word is ‘なかま’ . I love learning new things and talking to new people. Nice to meet you!

Shiela(Philippines)

Hello, everyone! I’m Shiela from the Philippines.
I am an ALT working in a public Junior High School in Sapporo. I really love teaching. It’s all that I want to do — I think it’s all I can do.
I like going to the beach a lot. I used to hang out by the beach with my friends. I don’t have those two with me in Sapporo, so what I do during my free time is watch TV series and movies on Netflix while binge eating (or drinking) or I go to Karaoke with friends and try out good restaurants in Sapporo.
I am looking forward to meeting you all at Chit Chat Cafe!

Pablo(Argentina/Italy)

Hello! I’m Pablo from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I came to Japan in February 2019 and after visiting many places decided that Sapporo was the place where I wanted to stay, because the people here are very friendly and I love cold weather.
I’ve visited many places around the world but always on vacation, so this time I wanted to take a different trip and not only be a tourist but a part of the place where I’m staying. I chose Japan because I love its culture and its people and after my vacation here in 2018 decided that I wanted to come back and check many other places that I didn’t have time to visit before.
I look forward to have interesting conversations and exchange knowledge and experiences with you!

Richan(US)

Hey, I’m Richan!
I’m 22 years old, I love cats, and my blood type is… Just kidding, I don’t know my blood type. I’ve lived most of my life in California, and I moved to Sapporo in June of 2019. (People say it snows a lot here. We’ll see about that!) For the last few years my main hobby has been studying Japanese, and I’m so excited to finally be in Japan. I think that learning a new language is one of the best ways to experience other cultures and get accustomed to new ways of thinking, which is why I’m so happy to have the opportunity to speak English with you. I admit I’m biased, but English really is a fun, expressive language, and on top of that it’s spoken by people from all over the world! My favourite things to talk about are movies, books, travel, and languages. I can’t wait to chat with you!
